PS4/Xbox One 1080p Patch 9/30/2014 PC Ultra settings
But...But.. the Xbox One cant do 1080p!!!! I called this when that stupid 720p/30fps rumor hit, and I said there is probably a day 1 patch, and must of received a dozen or so responses saying its impossible. Eat that crow.
It wasn't a rumor. They patched the game at release.
That would be one HELL of a patch to go from 720p --> 1080p Like I said down below, Diablo 3 went from 900 to 1080p... but a jump like that?
FYI COD Ghosts on PS4 was 720p, then patched. Funniest part, nobody noticed it was 720p when it came out, lol
@foehammer: FYI it wasn't. a beta build was reviewed. funniest part, it wasn't 720p when the game was finally released.
I've not seen anything confirming what the resolution actually is (which is strange considering the 720p rumour was the hottest story on here for so long).
Heat is generated by friction, in this case, the friction came from playstation fans who really really wanted it to be 720p so they just kept pouring over those articles thus making those articles HOT HOT HOT!!!
Digital Foundry is releasing their comparison soon so we'll see.
Any official patch notes from developers? I only found news about patch on gamepur ( gamespot is the source ). It is odd that only Gamespot noticed the difference ( if difference exist ), but no official confirmation from developers. Really weird. Anyway, wait for Digital Foundry comparison.
Game looks great, across all platforms. So no matter what you pick it up for you should be happy.
Totally agree, people were very quick to jump on it when it was suggested 720/30 (looking at a large section of N4SG crowd here). Now its 1080 I its a different story. I don't know where the term eat crow comes from but it sounds quite apt. Another title at parity.....
nobody said it couldnt do 1080p,its just that it has to take a graphical hit else where,like it clearly shows,also a framerate hit too
wow, quite the backlash against MS earlier when some report said it was only 720p/30fps. I guess apologies are in order? :P
apologies why it wasn't 1080p before the latest Patch :/.
It's FPS was above 30 pre patch as well yet people loved to jump on that train.
not quite sure on that one. but 720p --> 1080p is a big difference. Diablo 3 had a day one XB1 patch too, but I believe it was 900p before the patch.. regardless, nice to see that the XB1 owners will at least get some very nice graphics too. And to be honest, I would prefer a locked 30 over an unlocked. Keeps things consistent. I found playing Infamous when the framerate would jump up and down it felt a little off. Once the patch released for Second Son, I locked it at 30 all the time.
@neonridr i never locked infamous frame rate to me it feels way better than locked but that's my opinion.
Sure. A higher frame-rate will feel better . . . before the sudden dips of dozens of frames, creating a very serious sense of slowdown. Both visually and in the feel of the gameplay. If you honestly think you prefer that sort of thing, then you are honestly saying you like the feel of a muddled experience, and you would be in the minority there. A lower framerate locked will still feel more consistent and, in turn, offer a smoother experience overall. I am sure all those jumping around, biting at every little piece of information regarding the title on X1, relishing in it and talking smack for weeks, are going to be just as happy to take back what they said and acknowledge this change of events with just as much fervor . . . right? ;)
Apologies? Were we supposed to be able to look into the future?
The PS4 version looks the best if you ask me. Its looks like the devs put more effort into it really, not surprising when the PS4 has a larger userbase. I actually think the PC version looks the worst. [email protected] PC has better hardware and its looks the worst to me, very washed out for some reason? The PS4 is better than the x box 1 version i can clearly see that. Sony was given exclusive content, so it would not surprise me if devs focused on the PS4 version more.
I am going to go out on a limb and say that the reason why the PS4 version would look better would have to come down to a bit more powerful hardware, not the extra players.
Saying PC looks the worst is like saying it looks better on PS3 over PS4. The lighting alone makes it a better looking game on PC, not to mention ultra textures (as minor of an improvement as they are).
Seriously man? Since when was having washed out colors and having textures that are more blurry considered a better looking game? Are we even watching the same video? Right...I can definitely see those ultra textures put to good use....PS4 and Xbone both look superior. I couldn't tell much of a difference between the console versions.
@AssassinGamer136 - How could the textures possibly be blurrier? That doesn't make sense. The PC has higher resolution textures. Do you think 1080p looks blurrier than 720p? Because that's basically what you're saying. As far as washed out colors, PC has far more methods of graphical modification, both via your GPU control panel and in-game options. I have a PC and a PS4, but I'm getting it on PC because of higher framerates, potential mods, and enhanced graphical options. Solid 60 FPS makes for a smoother and more enjoyable experience, anyway. The fact that you think the console versions look identical shows you don't really know what you're looking at. PC > PS4 > XBOne.
Some PC textures I would have to agree look worse. Check ground textures from 00:26 - 01:02 in video. Aside from being washed out PC looks markedly blurrier and lower resolution!
@Blufish Except all versions of the game are 1080p not just the PC version so that 720p->1080p that you randomly brought up, is invalid. "Higher resolution textures" what did you base this statement on? Higher resolution are pixels that give clearer picture...Textures are a different format. Are you talking about the ultra HD textures? Then that is something different. Although I agree with you the PC version will have graphical mods I'm just basing what I see on this video which obviously shows the PC version being inferior.
And my Sega Genesis has me questioning what is and is not real at this point.
Well seeing as Genesis does what nintendon't...Id say its all real.
blast processing baby!
same game across all platforms.
Why the PC version looks washout on this video?
Either they don't know how to calibrate a monitor (if that's what they recorded on, or it's their equipment. Either way, it's not the fairest way of doing a comparison, considering there's such a disaparity in terms of gamma.
This video should prove to people that you should never judge these comparisons by the brightness, gamma, how "washout" it looks. Judge the res, textures, AA and so on. But i know ignorant people will continue to judge it stupidly.
agree whit you! the PC is soo washed that at first the PS4 looks way better! There is no way Ps4 will peform better than PC at ultra, but this video makes Ps4 looks better.
should i buy or shouldnt i buy help me out guys?
You should buy it. I bought this game along with forza horizon 2 and i have barely play horizon 2 because of this game. In my opinion the game is awesome.
Ok, so I know everydody is going to be dicks about ps4 vs xbox one, but I have to question if they were actually playing this on utra in the pc version. The textures look way lower res on pc, and the ps4 version clearly looks better.
so last post they did was the xbox copy running at 720p it blew up within 1hr almost eeryone bashing the xbox and laughing, imo they look almost identical wheres all those ps fanboys now??
Ummm chill man. Really if they wanted to they can easily rip on the game for being 30fps, but they are not. So relax, it's not life threatening or something that is important to your actual life.
All I remember reading was how "I'm going to buy the definitive version of the game on PS4" "glad I get to buy the best version" lol. All I can here are the crickets
i have tehe pc version with gtx 760 2gb ram but the ultra textures is lagging like hell so i play high textures but the ps4 version looks better(only textures)
Does someone actually expect the Sony trolls that said it would be 720p to appologize? They are TROLLS. They didn't make an honest mistake, they were posting flame bait and they knew it. They made the headline read 720p at 30fps, and then at the very bottom they noted it was probably all BS. Anyway the games graphics are average at best. The difference between PC, PS4, and Xbone are hardly visible. You have to play the games side by side on a 100" screen, pause the game and stare at Tallions left but cheek from 1 foot away while squinting.
People need to wait to see what happens...I am surprised DF did not get a hold of the lower resolution copy so they could compare it to after the patch. They love to do that then they proceed in looking for something wrong on the Xbox One version to highlight.
Very miniscule differences. Game will be fine on all platforms.
I've been playing shadow of mordor on high textures on PC at 60-80 FPS. I also played the ps4 and x1 versions as well with my friends, during game play I couldn't tell a difference across all three. If you pause it I'm sure you can pick out differences, but I don't see how you could notice a difference while chopping off the heads of 10 Uruks in a mad scramble for your life. For what it's worth, it didn't matter what system I played it on, I was having fun. It's a good game. I can't speak for Ultra on PC... But I guess that's just icing on the cake, or bragging rights. I don't see how the game would be so much better.
X1 looks great!
Eh who cares about the graphical comparison really, if you have the game for a specific system then you will know how frickin awesome this game is on all systems. I am loving the hell out of this game, it's awesome when you're fighting a captain then another one shows up and wants to fight too and you think, damn I'm about to get my (expletive) kicked but you wind up defeating both captains and around 10 reg Uruks and an epic rune drops. I really haven't been so excited about any next-gen game as I am for this one, can't wait to get home and play it some more.
game is boring
That's funny I commented on this and my comments we're removed.... Why? Is it maybe because I mentioned that both xbox one and ps4 were 1080p 30fps? Or because I mentioned that I phoned my local video game retailer to be told that the ps4 version suffered from frame rate issues?
